Had a dream I was President, then I woke up in jail / What’s the American Dream if your real life is hell?
Since touring the nation with B.o.B earlier this year, Columbia, MO singer/songwriter Reasn has been busy preparing for the release of his full length album 70 West, slated for release on 11/11.
Today, the artist brings harsh reality to light in his rock-infused single “American Dream” produced by Theron “Neff-U” Feemster. This original version of the song appears Reasn’s ’70 West’ EP, and a remix featuring Trae Tha Truth will appear on the official album as well.
It’s no secret B.o.B. is out there when it comes to conspiracy theories and he’s extremely woke.Yesterday on Twitter he stretched to the far reaches of the galaxy with his lastest theory of the Earth being flat! Yes he went there, and he really truly believes the Earth is not round as it has proven to be by the scientific community.
B.O.B.’s rant on Twitter yesterday pretty much had us all scratching our heads and wondering exactly what is this man smoking? He’s obviously higher than the airplanes he rapped about on his hit record of the same name. The rapper went on a tirade on Twitter, tweeting pictures trying to prove his point to the masses he feel are sheep, here are some of them:
All folks could do was just sit there and shake their heads as he just went on and on about the Earth being flat. Thank god for Neil deGrasse Tyson though who probably saw Bobby Ray’s timeline and was like:
Tyson quickly injected some knowledge into the debate, he corrected the rapper on mistakes he made in his tweets:
@bobatl Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.
He also let B.o.B. know even though his logic is ass-backwards we can still enjoy his music when he said:
Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.
B.o.B., who once rapped he’s “out of his mind” on a record couldn’t just let it go and dropped a song going at the astrophysicist, yes you read correctly he dissed Neil deGrasse Tyson. The track in question is titled “Flatline”,now many immediately thought this some sort of promotion for his upcoming album. He insists it’s not, take a listen to the track “Flatline” below:
Well you didn’t think it would just end there would it? Tyson got the help of his nephew to respond to B.o.B’s diss track titled “Flat to Fact”. The track follows the same idea as Drake’s diss record directed towards Meek Mill “Back To Back”. It’s quite entertaining listen to it below:
This definitely has to be the nerdiest beef ever! B.o.B. is dead serious on the “Flat Earth” movement which has definitely been gaining traction as of late. Doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right but we think B.o.B. should take the L on this one cause clearly he’s wrong. This is Neil deGrasse Tyson’s arena and we are very sure the guy knows exactly what the hell he is talking about.
New up & coming duo, Cool Amerika stopped by the SFPL Studio to talk about their new music & videos, T.I., OutKast, Bow Wow, the REAL meaning of the dance craze — #DAB, internet beef: Erykah vs. Iggy Azalea and much more.
When asked about Bow Wow’s YouTube video about his version of what the DAB really means:
I get what he’s saying but he had it wrong. DAB came from how you dress, how you put it on, but it has to be in you — not on you. You be in mirror checking yourself out like….Wooooo (hence “I look fresh”) [insert DAB]!
With a new album and mixtape on the way in 2016, the fellas advise us of features from the likes of; Wayne Wonder, B.o.B, recently being released from jail — rapper & 1/3 of Migos — Offset and more. On their wish list, fingers are crossed to work with Tory Lanez, Bryson Tiller, RJ & Choice, Nicki Minaj.
Turn up as ATL’s Cool Amerika preps us for weekend parties (and shopping) with their visual for “Do It Like Me”, directed by Kreative Kingpins. You can also find the duo on B.o.B‘s newest release NASA, featured on the song “Too High”.
The lovely Sevyn Streeter stopped by SFPL TV to give us a description of her new project Should Been There Pt. 1 and the inspiration behind it. The talented star also talks about her beau B.o.B and what she would do in a Nicki Minaj vs. Meek Mill vs. Drake situation.
Sevyn also talked about her favorite artists like: Usher, Brandy, Lauryn Hill and more. While asked who she would choose to remake the classic Brandy & Monica duet hit “The Boy Is Mine” with — you would be quite surprised with her answer and it’s actually a good one! We can’t wait to see it in action if it happens!
